Johannesburg - Former Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke, by staying tight-lipped, actually said a lot about the current situation at the SABC at the Nat Nakasa Awards ceremony in Johannesburg on Saturday evening.

Moseneke who was received by a standing ovation by those present took the stage saying that he has decided not to say a word about current developments in the media terrain.

"I prefer to stray away from the saga at the SABC," Moseneke started."I choose to be tight-lipped about its incumbent COO.

"I will say nothing about his departed acting CEO who has fallen on his own sword.

He continued by saying that he will not comment on Vuyo Mvoko's account of his "hellish stint" at the SABC.

"I am tight-lipped about the different takes of Chair Maghuve on the affairs of his corporation and I won't speculate about the pending Broadcasting Complaints Commision's rulings.

Moseneke said that he would not delve into these topics in detail as he is no longer an active judge.

"I dare not venture into the reported toyi-toyi of Sanef and other activists outside a number of newsworthy media sights.

"We've heard them sing and they seem to sing and dance quite well," Moseneke said

The awards concluded in an emotional manner when the eight SABC journalists who are facing disciplinary hearings were each awarded the Nat Nakasa award.

They are Jacques Steenkamp, Suna Venter, Foeta Krige, Krivani Pillay, Busisiwe Ntuli, Vuyo Mvoko, Lukhanyo Calata, Thandeka Gqubule were all honoured with the award.

It was the first time ever that eight people have won the award in the same year.
